这里是今日热点节目。
Officials with the Miss America Organization say the pageant is ending its swimwear part of the competition.
美国小姐组委会官员表示,美国小姐选美大赛将停止泳装赛环节。
The head of the organization, Gretchen Carlson, announced the change Tuesday. She said the event will no longer judge competitors on their appearance but on “what makes you you.”
该组委会主席格雷琴·卡尔森周二宣布了这项变动。她说,这个比赛将不再以参赛者外表为评价标准,而是以“内涵”评价。
The pageant began in the seaside town of Atlantic City, New Jersey almost 100 years ago.
这项盛典始于100年前的新泽西州海滨城市亚特兰大市。
In recent years, women’s groups and others have criticized the pageant. They say making the competitors wear swimsuits is outdated and sexist.
最近这些年,女性组织和其他机构经常批判这项赛事。他们称参赛者穿着泳装比赛已经过时,并且有性别歧视之意。
Tuesday’s announcement came after leadership changes within the Miss America Organization. The changes followed reports last December that Miss America officials had criticized winners’ intelligence, appearance and sex lives. The comments appeared in emails that were made public.
周二的公告是在美国小姐组委会领导组换任之后公布。这些变化是在去年12月,美国小姐组委会的官员批判获胜者的的智商、外表和性生活后发生。电子邮件中的评论被公之于众。
Women now hold the top three positions at the organization.
目前,该组织最高级的三个职位都由女性担任。
Carlson said the organization heard from former Miss America competitors who told leaders they do not “want to be out there” in swimsuits.
卡尔森表示,组委会从前任美国小姐大赛参赛者处得知,她们“不愿意穿着泳装出现在那里。”
“Guess what You don’t have to anymore,” Carlson said Tuesday on the television program Good Morning America.
“你猜怎么着,那就不再需要穿泳装比赛了,”卡尔森周二在电视节目《早安美国》中宣布道。
In place of the swimsuit competition, competitors will take part in a meeting with the judges. Each woman will discuss her life goals and how she will use her own skills to “perform the job of Miss America,” the organization said in a statement.
代替泳装赛环节的是,参赛者需要和裁判共同参加一场会议。每位女性都要谈谈她的生活目标以及她将如何运用自身技能“承担好美国小姐的责任,”组委会在一则声明中说道。
Carlson said, “It’s what comes out of their mouths that we care about.”
卡尔森表示:“我们关注的是她们能说出什么来。”
Leanza Cornett won Miss America in 1993. She supported the dropping of the swimsuit competition.
黎恩萨·科内特是1993年的美国小姐冠军。她支持取消泳装比赛环节。
She said, “In the climate of #MeToo, I think it’s a really wise decision. We’re living in a different era now, and when we move forward for the empowerment of women, we will be taken much more seriously, and I think that’s huge.”
她表示:“在‘我也是’事件甚嚣尘上的情况下,我认为这真是一个非常明智的决定。如今,我们生活在一个不一样的时代,而且当我们努力为女性谋权力时,我们也会受到更严肃的对待,我认为这样做意义巨大。”
The changes will start with this year’s national competition in September.
这些变化将从今年9月份的全国比赛开始实施。
